Some lineman try to get into a 3-point stance, but their expansive mid-section gets in their way and their hand doesn't quite reach the ground.  Sometimes all that is touching is the fingers.

We were told if his hand is below his knee, it is "near" the ground.

"Set" does not equal "restricted".  If an interior lineman has his hand extended toward the ground, whether or not he is actually touching it, he is restricted.
